Description

Mint State 1799 Eagle
Small Stars, BD-7 Variety

1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse MS61 PCGS. Breen-6840, BD-7, R.3. The 1799 Capped Bust Right eagle claims a reported mintage of 37,449 pieces, with 10 die varieties known for the date. Eight varieties display small stars on the obverse, while the final two exhibit large stars. This coin is an example of the Small Stars BD-7 variety, with the 17 in the date slanted to the right, and star 13 on the reverse positioned away from the ribbon. The BD-7 is one of the more available varieties, probably accounting for 10,000-15,000 pieces of the reported mintage. John Dannreuther believes 250-350 examples are still extant in all grades.
The present coin is an attractive Mint State example, with vivid lemon-yellow and greenish-gold surfaces. The design elements are sharply detailed, and the surfaces retain much prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas. Population: 14 in 61, 38 finer (11/11).
Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2624, PCGS# 98562)
